Trying to finish up some of my India photos from 2010 with some of the assorted birdlife of Assam and Aranachal Pradesh. The first two shots were both taken handheld from a canoe, no easy task with the long telephoto lens in use. Notice the shallow depth of field when using such long focal lengths, particularly with wide apertures. Fast shutter speeds were essential and thank goodness for image stabilization technology.
